    Hey all. I in a bit of situation here. I'm very much in the market for a PowerBook 12". I know there's the whole Intel thing but i'm not going to wait that long for a mac. cause i think i'm in love with the PB now.
    However, right now there's the $100 rebate for college student which ends on June 25th.
    My question is this: I could wait until school start in september(even october) to get a new PB, but will there be a revsion from now until then?
    Will the update be worth the wait? (How much of power/feature will be revised?)

    Also, do you guys think there'll be a some kind of price drop from now till then? (more than $100?)

    So what do you think? Should i got for the main course or wait for the desert?
    Thanks All. :)

    The Powerbooks were updated 6 months ago. I would buy now unless you want to wait for the Intel models to come out.

    I would reccomend that you go ahead and purchase now. No reason to miss the extra $100 rebate plus the educational discount. Don't really expect much in the way of a rebate any time soon. The current PowerBook is a great system. Won't not start enjoying your Mac over the summer.
